A quadrilateral with two distinct pairs of equal adjacent sides ^{[1]}

As a result of this definition:

- Diagonals are perpendicular
- Opposite angles enclosed by two unequal adjacent sides are equal
- Area = half the product of the diagonals

A Kite in which all four sides are equal is called a rhombus.

### Notes

- ↑ There seems to be some debate about whether or not this is a bona fide sub-classification of quadrilaterals, and if so, how it should be defined. See http://www.mathopenref.com/kite.html
